Navi Mumbai Cyclothon 2021 postponed as covid-19 cases spike

The NMMC has postponed the cyclothon dates twice – 21 February and now 28 February, 2021, as a precaution amid rising cases of covid-19.

Navi Mumbai: The much anticipated “Navi Mumbai Cyclothon 2021” by the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC), has been cancelled citing rising covid-19 cases in the city. The large scale event was rescheduled for 28 February, 2021, after being postponed once on 21 February, and was believed to have attracted a huge number of participants from in and around the city.

The NMMC had planned the “Navi Mumbai Cyclothon 2021” as a community event for active participation of citizens, in matters of environment and climate. The event was being held under the banner of “Majhi Vasundahra”, or “My Earth” campaign, promoted by the Environment and Climate Change Ministry, Maharashtra.

However, considering the sudden spike in the number of covid-19 cases in this month (February), the NMMC thought wise to push the event further given the fact that it would draw in a lot of people.

Presently, up to 100 covid-19 positive cases are being reported daily and hence the NMMC is not taking any chances by organising a mass event.

As for now, the Navi Mumbai Cyclothon, 2021, has been postponed until further notice.
